The Powerlink Pro 100 is on the top of my list of purchases when I upgrade to ISA 2006 - currently use a Symantec 360

It will host DNS for your websites/exchange OWA etc...

I am running an ISA 2004 appliance. I want to bring in a second Internet connection to supplement my primary. My goal is to have traffic that uses our public IP addresses (remote access, web publishing, incoming email) use the primary and web browsing use the secondary. Here is my plan please poke holes in it.

Connect both ISP connections to a switch. Connect switch to the WAN NIC on the firewall. Configure the WAN NIC with IP addresses from both ISP's making the secondary ISP the default gateway.

I don't care about load balancing.

If this will not work what are my alternatives. This is short term until my primary ISP can bring fiber into the building.
